Clunes Crossing Angus was established in 2008 by Andrew Bryant and Francesca Webster. Based at Dalveen, between Warwick and Stanthorpe on the cusp of the Southern Downs and Granite Belt, Clunes Crossing is ideally located for producers to view the potential of quality Angus cattle raised under local conditions.
From a base foundation female herd selected from Hazeldean and Te Mania Angus Studs, continual genetic improvement is prioritised. Careful selection of AI Sires has contributed to significant genetic improvement within our female herd from one generation to the next. In 2016, ClunesCrossing was ranked second in Australia for performance Angus cattle across all indexes. In 2017 M13 was ranked as the number 1 stud Angus Bull in Australia based on EBV and genomic testing. Indexes place a $ value on the likely outcome from any progeny as compared to the registered Angus herd in Australia taking into account, carcass quality, marbling, structural soundness, fertility, maternal traits and phenotype. This is key to Commercial producers purchasing Clunes Crossing Bulls for joining to theiur cow herd to produce the best possible genetic improvement and ultimately the highest value/quality calf to suit all target markets.
